Enrollment is now open to students and enterprise clients in the Core Cannabis course from Higher Learning LV. This is the first full course from this new disruptive training and education company.
For metrics nerds, this premium on-demand course is 48,000 words, the equivalent of about a 93-page book. In development for more than a year, this exclusive evidence-based content is spread over dozens of homework assignments featuring more than one hundred study summaries.
One of the chief goals of this premium training is to help students shed the heavy stigma and misinformation associated with cannabis and hemp. Urban legends and other forms of incorrect information about this herb have been propagated and reinforced for more than a century during the prohibition of cannabis that began in the early 20th century in North America.
The target audience of this course is those who wish to enter the cannabis or hemp industries or those who are currently employed within these industries and wish to increase their knowledge and insight of the Cannabis sativa L. botanical species to bolster their career by improving their job security, earning a raise, or winning a promotion.

What Students Learn
This in-depth research-based course teaches students the 25 most important cannabinoids and eight most common terpenes produced by cannabis/hemp/marijuana. When complete, students will have a solid and detailed evidence-based understanding of these valuable phytomolecules for which a multibillion dollar industry is rapidly emerging.
Students study these cannabinoids and terpenes from the latest research studies, ensuring that what they are learning is as accurate and current as possible.
This training asset includes 34 homework assignments that feature 127 exclusive study summaries, with many from recent studies published in 2023 and 2022. This course is based entirely on the results and data from peer-reviewed research studies and is delivered in plain English for non-technical laypeople.
All Higher Learning LV training assets, including the Core Cannabis course, have been strategically developed with the staff training needs of enterprise clients in mind. Our modular approach to content development allows us to quickly and accurately customize content for different industry segments, job descriptions, and state- or province-level regulatory requirements.
Core Cannabis serves as the universal prerequisite for all other seminars and courses offered by Higher Learning LV. This includes our Cannabis Foundation series featuring optional certification and Budtender Basics (for which enrollment will open in Q2 2023).
Enrollment is now open for Core Cannabis for $240. Students are given two months to complete the course.
